I couldn’t believe my eyes. Star Wars III — Revenge of the Sith is a 9/11
(For those who do not want to know the plot of this film, read no
It came as a complete surprise. My wife and I went to see this film
somewhat reluctantly, and with some misplaced sense of obligatory
nostalgia for a franchise that harkened back to our youth. How could we
NOT? But, we fully expected to be moderately entertained at best, with
perhaps some of the familiar lingering disappointment we felt over the
last two installments in the series.
What we found instead was a big-budget major blockbuster of a film that
had me literally squirming in my seat with the desire to jump up and
scream at the audience, “Are you people getting this!!!?”
Yes, this movie goes where no major commercial film has gone before. This
film dares to suggest that 9/11 was an inside job.
We have all heard the rumors that this film draws some interesting
parallels between the Bush administration and the dark side of government
depicted in this film. Seeking to strengthen security during wartime,
Chancellor Palpatine persuades the Senate to give up civil liberties.
“So this is how liberty dies — to thunderous applause,” Senator Amidala
There are the obvious lines.
Darth Vader: “If you’re not with me, you’re my enemy.”

David Ray Griffin asks the tough questions about Sept. 11, contending U.S. officials had some knowledge of what was coming and possibly orchestrated the attacks.
Griffin, whose book, “The New Pearl Harbor: Disturbing Questions About the Bush Administration and 9/11,” came out a year ago, drew an enthusiastic standing ovation from the majority of the 400 or so people who packed his lecture Monday night at Bascom Hall.
A retired Christian theologian, Griffin, 65, taught for more than 30 years at the Claremont School of Theology in California.
His comments Monday night were directed at religious people, who he said need to respond to Sept. 11 – and the American empire that has ensued – based on the moral principles of their religious traditions.
Drawing laughter from the crowd, Griffin said he had in mind principles like: “Thou shalt not covet thy neighbors’ oil” and “Thou shalt not murder thy neighbors in order to steal their oil.”
While Griffin noted that his books and talks have not received attention from the mainstream media, C-SPAN had a cameraman at the event and plans to air the lecture at a future date. Madison’s public access cable television station, WYOU-TV/Channel 4, meanwhile, will air the talk at 7 p.m. Thursday.
Americans interpret the events of Sept. 11 in one of four ways, Griffin said:

Fine, lean and interestingly timed recounting of Hitler’s terror-assisted rise. – Ed.
Living in a state of terror has to be experienced to be understood. Many of us who live in tough neighbourhoods worry when we go out of our houses but we usually feel safe enough inside. And we definitely do not have to worry about the door being broken down by the police or National Guard, provided we have done nothing wrong.
Too late, the ordinary German realized that the violence which before had been directed against ‘other’ people could now equally land on him, especially when he saw what Goering did in Prussia where he was the Minister of the Interior and controlled the police. He simply augmented the police numbers with 50,000 men of which 40,000 came from the SA and issued orders that no force was too great in apprehending the enemies of the State; at the time Prussia covered about two-thirds of Germany. No one could, therefore, rely on the law, and justice no longer existed.
In the Cabinet formed by Hitler, the President and the other parties as a result of the ‘hung’ election of November 1932, Hitler was Chancellor but the Nazis had only two more posts, out of a total of 11. One of them was given to Goering, who was named Minister without Portfolio; almost unnoticed, he became Prussia’s Interior Minister as well in the general share out of posts. The Nazis and… Continue reading
Distrust of U.S. Fuels Stories About Source of the Attacks By IAN JOHNSON THE WALL STREET JOURNAL
September 29, 2003
His thesis: The U.S. government staged the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on New York and Washington to justify wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. It is a tentative theory, he admits, based mostly on his doubt that Osama bin Laden’s al Qaeda terrorist group launched the attacks.
“That’s something that is simply 99% false,” he said at a reading of his book on the second anniversary of the attacks.
A crackpot? A conspiracy theorist who believes that Elvis lives and the CIA murdered Kennedy? Not exactly. Mr. von Bulow, 66 years old, is a former German cabinet minister, a trim, silver-haired man whose book comes from one of the country’s most prestigious publishing houses and who lectures at well-known public institutions.
He’s not alone: In recent months, Germany’s leading broadcaster, ARD, ran a purported documentary making similar claims, while half a dozen other German authors have published… Continue reading
The events of Sept. 11 had a big impact in Germany, as they did everywhere else.
Millions of Germans took to the streets to show their solidarity with the people of New York and Washington. Germany passed its own version of the PATRIOT ACT. German forces joined the Afghanistan mission and are still heading it today.
Many building blocks of the official story and much of the evidence that causes skeptics to doubt it comes from Germany. Germany was home until 2000 to the members of the “Hamburg cell,” which allegedly provided three of the hijacking pilots. The only two prosecutions of alleged attack plotters – the Motassadeq and Mzoudi cases – were tried in Hamburg in 2002 and 2003. Both cases were voided after U.S. authorities refused to provide evidence that supposedly incriminated the two men.
German opinion about Sept. 11 began to shift as the Bush regime spited its former allies and told outrageous lies in the drive to attack Iraq. In the summer of 2003, several German books presenting alternate views of 9/11 became instant best-sellers. A poll showed that 20 percent of Germans believed the U.S. government likely had a hand in engineering the attacks.
All this served to set off a German “Summer of 9/11.” The first major international research conference of 9/11 skeptics, “UNANSWERED QUESTIONS – DEMANDING ANSWERS,” was held in Berlin on Sept. 7, 2003. Among the American and British speakers were former U.S. Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney and authors Michael Ruppert, Nafeez Ahmed,… Continue reading
